Note "Check in / Check out" describes this international trend using case studies from cities that include Shanghai, Tokyo, London and Rio de Janeiro, as well as developments in the Netherlands. What are the consequences of this information society for citizens? When does the technology aid them and does that emancipate them? When does the technology restrict citizens in their movements and impinge upon their privacy? How does this development influence the public space? Who wields control over the technology? And who actually sits behind the contraptions that are tracking us? The expert authors of "Check in / Check out" tackle these topical questions and make recommendations for the future
